How to pay homage to Chhatrapati Shivaji?

Unlike the moron­ic ways I’ve writ­ten about many times ear­li­er, this group of peo­ple show us the real way.

For two months they stayed away from home, quit jobs and risked their lives and limbs climb­ing to dizzy­ing heights and faced nature’s chal­lenges. For, pro­pelling these 20 youth, was their devo­tion to Chha­tra­p­ati Shiv­a­ji Maharaj. Their mis­sion: To pho­to­graph and doc­u­ment over 200 of his forts in the State.” For what, you ask?

    Greet­ings,

    I am great admir­er of Shri Chha­tra­p­ati Shiv­a­ji Maharaj. Since child­hood I have been read­ing a lot about my favourite king. I don’t have the resources nor the finances to vis­it my child­hood dream fort- Raigad.
    Is the site going to put all the pho­tos on the net for die-hard fans like me?
    It would be great if you could do it.
    Keep up the good work. Kudos to the team.

  • Benoy: Raigad is sit­u­at­ed not far away from Mum­bai! Any­ways, yes, the site is going to put not just pho­tos, but inter­ac­tive tours of all the forts on the net, for free!
